It was the Brittney Roby show for the Twin Cedars’ softball team last night, as the junior went 4-for-4 at the plate, was a home run away from hitting for the cycle, scored four runs herself and pitched a two-hit shutout to lead her Sabers to a 9 – 0 victory over Pella Christian. Baylee Zellmer was 2-for-3 with three RBI’s, and Payton Fee was 3-for-4 at the plate for the Sabers. Both hits for the Eagles came in the first two innings, off the bats of Jenna Roose and Taylor Hartson. Shannon Fynaardt gave up only one run in her two innings of work to take the loss, but struck out five batters, including three straight “K’s” in a 1-2-3 second inning. Sabers’ head coach, Zack Dunkin said that Roby’s effectiveness on the mound this season can be attributed to her confidence behind her off-speed pitch. Despite the loss, Eagles’ head coach, Nate Van Wyk said that the pitching staff did an overall good job on the mound. The loss drops the Eagles to 9 – 10 – 1 on the year, while the win improves Twin Cedars’ record to 15 – 6. The Sabers host Lamoni tonight and Pella Christian will wait until Friday to play their last conference game against Newton.
